Took the advice on toning down the sky and curving the path. Not sure either worked out. I think I liked it better before.

This is a Cool Pastel ( my favorite media) work. You made the the Sky wonderful. They have bright texture...Somersault of Blue and Violet and white....One thing I feel is the bottom part is looking slightly monotonous (due to lack of perspective in the grasses?) But at the bottom-left orange strokes wanted to add another dimention. I think more such work at the bottom will improve it.


Nice work, Impulse. Good luck

I see a man's body in the sky,
still love the way the grain goes.

Thank you for your comments and your advice. I like the thought of working extra dimension into the grass. http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/smile.gif

Thanks Jerry. I tried to put the grassy pattern into my sky as you suggested and soon realized I don't have the skill to pull that off with coarse watercolour paper so I backed off.

Man's body? interesting. I think dghoweth had seen a reclining nude. The boys are on a roll!

This is in respones to asking for advice.
I want to let you know that the nifty part of pastel is how much better lights go over darks. It is the unexpected and magical part of the stuff.
If you want to jazz up the grass, be bold and use lighter colors.
But if you fill up the surface of the paper you will just mush them.
I must say I don't really know about oil pastels, but when I get too much on the surface I can scratch off with a blade, or pull off with an eraser and load the paper up again.
I also hate white. Using watercolor paper works because I paint the darks in color. I can control underpainting with temerature and value to get colors to vibrate next to each other.
So since you are playing, try next time working dark to light. It is so backwards from watercolor but that is what the medium does best in my book.
About the naked guy... maybe I see him, but he is sort of rolled half on his side...DEFINATELY a belly button!

Merely a student of life!:)

'The artist is no more than a receptacle for sensations, a brain, a recording apparatus. But if it interferes, if it dares, feeble apparatus that it is, to deliberately intervene in what it should be translating, its own pettiness gets into the picture. The work becomes inferior....
